Wide Array Edge Detector
ACCUWEB'S DYNAMICALLY COMPENSATION ARRAY EDGE DETECTORS OFFER A WIDE SENSING RANGE USING EITHER ULTRASONIC OR INFRARED SENSING TECHNOLOGY
WideArray™ Edge Detectors feature large detection ranges to accommodate variations in web width. Web widths can be changed on the fly, eliminating the need to physically reposition edge detectors. Rugged and compact in size, a WideArray is easily mounted and requires only a single cable.
24V DC Operation — Integrates easily into existing lines or control panels. 150 Watts of Power – Enough power to control all web guiding actuators.
Advanced Brushed or Brushless Drive — works with existing actuators and maintenance-free brushless motors.
Network Friendly — EtherNet/IP, PROFINET I/O, and discrete I/O communication protocols allow easy interface with PLC networks.
Web Accessible — Integrated web connection via standard EtherNet cabling allows convenient uploading and downloading of guide settings and performance data.
Applications — Designed for web applications up to 40" wide.
DualEdge™ Guiding — Capable of centerline guiding webs up to 18" wide using a single WideArray™ edge detector.
Four Configurations — The EVO 150 control module is available for DIN rail mounting or in steel enclosure with optional switchpad or touch screen HMI.
Ratings — Enclosures are rated IP65 for protection from harsh environments, and designed to UL, EUL, CUL and CE codes. Reference UL certificates at www.ul.com.
- The WideArray is ideal for any application that requires an increased detection range. Applications include edge guiding, centerline guiding, electronic oscillation to reduce guage-band build-up, positioning one web relative to another, measuring web width, and monitoring edge or centerline position.
- A remote station can be located anywhere, allowing operators to easily adjust guide points in .001 inch increments within the wide detection range. Now operators can fine-tune web position with digital accuracy and repeatability.
- The WideArray is ideally suited for chaser/slave applications typically found in laminating, thereby replacing complicated and high-maintenance mechanical positioning devices.
- Web guage position and guide point can be communicated via PLC inputs using the Micro 4000®NET Controller
